    Yeah, to be clear, I don't either, so sometimes I'm reluctant to criticize.

    I also enjoy the fact that we haven't adopted the uncle/nephew thing here.

    Well, it was not meant to be, but I think it went a bit overboard.

    Fantastic!

    Going tomorrow to try on the new Tank MC in steel/white. Short of buying Dino's Tank, it looks pretty attractive.

    Question to you guys: This watch is a manual wind, and from playing with the crown of the watch I notice that I can only adjust the minute hand. From the minimal information available online about UG watches, apparently the month has to be adjusted every end of the month. I tried winding the minute hand for days until it skips from 31st to the 1st but the month did not change. Is this common? How does one adjust the moonphase, date, etc then? As compared to my TAG heuer, there are multiple positions of the crown that adjusts each functions so I was kinda expecting the same but apparently not.
